The Bridal Session is a portrait session that is done prior to the wedding day. This session is included in my wedding packages and there are many benefits to taking advantage of this extra photography time.
Trial run of hair and make-up
#1 It is always a good idea to schedule an appointment for a trial run with the hairstylist. This allows you to see how how the whole ensemble works and gives you an opportunity to make sure you like the way the hairstyle looks in photos prior to the big day. We usually schedule the Bridal Session for the same day as the trial run, that way all you have to do is put on your dress and you're ready to go!
Save time on the day of the wedding
#2 The Bridal Session saves time on the day of the wedding. Weddings usually run on a tight timeline and we're going to be taking a lot of photos that day. By doing a separate Bridal Session it allow us time to get all the great photos you want of you in your dress without having to worry about the clock.
Choice of location
#3 It is often possible to shoot the Bridal Session in the same location as the wedding but occasionally you may wish to have it somewhere else. By shooting this session on a day prior to the the wedding, we are able to go to other locations that the wedding-day schedule may not allow for.
